LANC is a bit more complicated than simple RC (because it's bi-directional), I was toying with using it to remote control an old Sony camcorder I have (with a duff recorder) that I use as a camera. But, like many things, I never got around to it.Robert Booher said:Hello. we have a project to remotly start a Sony DV900 recorder and stop it. I have found some code and a chip but would like to tye it all together. It does not have to be fancy. The VCR will be on just need to remotely start the record and then stop it. Thanks
Not at all, it's similar to doing I2C - essentially you set the output pin permanently LOW, and use the TRIS register to switch the pin from input to output as you want it setting HIGH and LOW.from what I have read to comunacated with a sony camcorder via the Lanc from a pic micro the pic must have a open drain are open collector output.
Yes, any PIC.thanks
I believe I understand what your saying:
when your sending data to the camera I think your just shorting between Lanc and ground and open,you do this by output -low to short - switch to input for open. when your reading data to find the start bit the pin is a input.
so I could basically us any Pic chip.
Assembler certainly has more chance, check the ZIP file I posted the link to above.Next problem: Like I said what programming I do I do with Pic basic Pro
and from what I have read this would need to be done in Assemble.
anybody interested in giving me a hand with that part?
